Supervisors Will Ask Governor To Declare State Of Emergency

antonovichstormupdateThe Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is preparing to ask Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to declare a state of emergency throughout Los Angeles County.

A declaration of this kind serves to free up assistance to property owners and others affected by the storm.

 

 

 

The emergency order will:

  • Waive regulations which may hinder response and recovery efforts;
  • Make recovery assistance available under the California Disaster Assistance Act;
  • Expedite access to federal resources and disaster relief programs, including the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
